Find Out if You Have a Personal Injury Case

You may have been involved in an accident and want to know whether or not you have a personal injury case. Listed below are some examples of personal injury cases so that you can determine whether or not you need to hire a personal injury attorney.

Examples of Personal Injury Cases.

These are just a few examples of how a personal injury may occur:

Example 1:

Suppose you are walking down the aisle of a store and a large container falls on top of you. You fall and you break your arm and your eyeglasses break also. You may have a personal injury claim against the store for the broken arm and a property damage claim for your broken eyeglasses.

Example 2:

Suppose you are driving down the road and someone else pulls out in front of you and causes a wreck. If your car is damaged but your body is not hurt, then you do not have a personal injury claim, but you may have a property damage claim. If on the other hand, your car is banged up and you are also injured, then you may have both a personal injury claim and property damage claim.

Example 3:

Suppose you are waiting to cross the street. When the light changes to “walk” you start walking across the street. If a vehicle fails to yield to you crossing the street and hits you, then you may have a personal injury claim. If your watch is also broken as a result of the car hitting you, then you may also have a property damage claim.
